We’ve seen these three menu covers before, but not with exactly the same inner menus. I’m including all three in one post so we can get to other “new” things sooner.
We’ve seen the cover before in a 1965 lunch menu, but today’s dinner menu was used on the City of Portland in 1969. It offers boneless trout, chicken pie, roast beef, and of course sirloin steak.
This cover was shown before on a 1971 dinner menu. Today’s version was used for lunch on the City of Los Angeles in 1970. Meals included French fried shrimp, Spanish omelet, Salisbury steak, barbecued chicken, and the chef’s salad.
This cover was previously shown on a 1971 lunch menu, but here is on a 1970 City of Los Angeles dinner menu. This is one of those menus that doesn’t have an a la carte side, instead offering five table d’hôte entrées: Utah brook trout, Union Pacific fried chicken, Iowa ham, Nebraska prime rib, and Nebraska corn-fed steak. Union Pacific was apparently ahead of the curve on the localism movement.
